A video posted online appears to show a Kellogg's worker urinating on cereal before it is packed in boxes for sale.

The company said it is "outraged by this completely unacceptable situation" as it confirmed the incident was recorded at its Memphis, Tennessee factory in 2014.

It confirmed that criminal investigation has been launched into the act, which WREG-TV reported was shot during a contentious labour dispute.

The 43-second video, which is too explicit to show, was posted on website World Star Hip Hop on Friday.

It shows the man urinating onto the conveyer belt, as loose cereal is unloaded from a tube onto the production line. The video zooms in on a Kellogg's logo on equipment in the factory.

The identity of the man in the film is not known.

Rice Krispies Treats, Rice Krispies Treats, Rice Krispies Treats cereal and puffed rice cake products are products "that could have been potentially affected."

Kellogg takes this situation very seriously and we were shocked and deeply disappointed by this video that we just learned of yesterday. We immediately alerted law enforcement authorities and regulators. A criminal investigation is underway as well as a thorough internal investigation.

...Food quality is of the utmost importance to Kellogg Company. We are outraged by this completely unacceptable situation, and we will work closely with authorities to prosecute to the full extent of the law.

Last year a farm worker in Lincolnshire was sacked after being caught on film urinating in a field of vegetables headed for Tesco.
